Rahul Gandhi breaks silence on Congress debacle in northeast, says 'respect mandate'

Rahul Gandhi breaks silence on Congress debacle in northeast, says 'respect mandate'”

Deodhar's work has received praise from the Shiv Sena whose spokesperson, Sanjay Raut, said that he had emerged as the third person in the BJP, after PM Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah, who could win elections. The BJP won 35 seats on its own, giving it a majority in the 60-member Tripura Assembly.

BJP in-charge in Tripura and Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said, "People were fed up with the Manik Sarkar government which has been ruling the State for more than two decades and wanted to get rid of the CPI (M) rule".

The National People's Party (NPP) and its ally at the Centre and in Manipur, the BJP, together won 21 seats, though they contested independently.

Though with 21 seats, Congress emerged as the single largest party in Meghalaya and met the governor last night to convey that it should be invited first to form the government, and was in talks with UDP-HSPDP combine besides NCP and others for a possible arrangement, the UDP finally made a decision to side with the NPP following negotiations led by the BJP's NEDA convenor Himanta Biswa Sarma in state capital Shillong.

The saffron party inflicted a humiliating defeat on the Left Front, which had never faced such a situation, even when it had lost power in 1988 to the Congress-Tripura Upajati Juba Samity combine, media reports pointed out.

The BJP-IPFT alliance claimed a thumping majority in Tripura on Saturday.

The newly elected MLAs of alliance partners NDPP, BJP and others would meet on Monday to elect senior NDPP leader Neiphiu Rio as CM candidate.

Nigeria apologises for claim that abducted girls had been rescued
And I was made to understand this morning that the defence ministry was disputing; that they did not withdraw anyone. He said the government was sending more troops and surveillance aircraft to the area to help the search.

The state unit celebrated the BJP's performance in the three states following directives from the national BJP.

She said the result in Tripura was due to CPM's "surrender" and the "failure" of the Congress to agree to an alliance. The Congress had won 10 seats in 2013 Assembly polls.

In the North Eastern elections the Congress suffered severe rout in Tripura as well as in Nagaland also where it had 8 members in the Assembly now reduced to zero here also. But it would be a mistake to read into the northeastern election results a foregone verdict in favour of the BJP in 2019.

The gathering also observed two minutes' silence in honour of the BJP workers reportedly killed during the election campaigning in the three states.

Tripura has increased the footprint of the BJP in the North East dramatically.

The BJP government also sees the Northeast as India's bridge to Southeast Asia, and new infrastructure projects are planned to boost connectivity with ASEAN.

Brinda Karat, an opposition leader blamed the left front's defeat in Tripura on the "unprecedented deployment of money" by the BJP and its Hindu nationalist mentor Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
